Silversea Cruises, the world’s premier ultra-luxury cruise line, on Friday marked its return to global operations with the maiden voyage of its new flagship, Silver Moon, from Athens (Piraeus). The launch of Silver Moon also represents the unveiling of S.A.L.T., the cruise line’s new culinary program.
The inaugural sailing of Silversea’s new expeditionary vessel, Silver Origin, departs from San Cristobal in the Galapagos today. Silversea’s first destination-specific ship will sail with all-new itineraries in the archipelago.
Silversea said its return to service under safe, healthy conditions, its fleet expansion and enhanced cultural offerings reflect the company’s commitment to international market growth, while meeting rising consumer demand for ultra-luxury travel, following a year-long travel pause.
“With the maiden voyages of these two beautiful ships, we welcome guests to rediscover exotic destinations, cultures and cuisines in our trademark level of comfort, with impeccable personalized service,” said Silversea’s President and CEO Roberto Martinoli. “These initial sailings will transport guests to our most sought-after destinations in the Greek Isles and the Galapagos Archipelago, and we look forward to the further expansion of our offering in July with resumed service to Alaska on Silver Muse and Iceland on Silver Shadow. I look forward to personally welcoming our guests aboard Silver Moon in Greece.”
Silver Moon & Silver Origin's debut voyages
Sailing out of Athens (Piraeus), Silver Moon will follow 10-day itineraries in the Greek isles, offering guests luxury ocean-view suites, fine dining and personalized service, with a nearly 1:1 crew-to-guest ratio.
Silver Origin gives travelers a high-end option for exploring the Galapagos islands with year-round, ultra-luxury expeditionary voyages. The ship features balcony-only suites, the highest expert guide-to-guest ratio in the Galapagos (1:10) and the highest Zodiac-to-guest ratio (1:12.5) in the region, as well as Silversea’s customary amenities. Silver Origin is the first destination-specific ship built by Silversea and one of the most energy-efficient ships in its class.
Immersive culinary experience
The premier of Silversea’s pioneering culinary program Sea and Land Taste, or S.A.L.T., invites guests to enjoy immersive culinary experiences for a taste of authentic cultures and traditions of each visited region. For more information, see Silversea’s website.
Building on Silversea’s global healthy return to service, Silver Muse will set sail to Alaska from July 29, while Silver Shadow will sail on circumnavigations of Iceland starting July 30.
Silversea continues to work closely with relevant government bodies and health authorities to maintain a multi-layered set of science-backed protocols to help ensure the health and safety of our guests, crew, and visited communities. For more details, visit Silversea's website.
